Hey guys,
There's one thing I've always wondered about the accusim series, that's what accu means.
Does this mean accurate, as your planes are really accurate, or does it mean accumulate because your planes accumulate flying hours?
Or maybe it means both... :D


btw, sorry if there are mistakes, I use google translate to translate from French. :mrgreen:

Accusim can best be described as a program that places an aircraft and its systems into a virtual world based on real world physics. In other words an A2A simulated aircraft acts in the sim as if it was operating in a real world atmosphere. Systems are affected by pressures, temperatures, and forces. Accusim is so deep that it even takes a time line into account. A cylinder for example is subjected to stress, heat and cold, and lubrication. These things cause wear. All this is accounted for in Accusim.
This is but one example.
You might have heard the term "as real as it gets". Well that's Accusim !

"Accurate Simulation" is the proper way to interpret Accu-Sim.

The following is copied directly from the Piper Cub's Accu-Sim pack manual:

ACCU-SIM EXPANSION PACK Accu-Sim Expansion Pack upgrades core areas of Microsoft Flight Simulator X to provide the maximum amount of realism and immersion possible. Each pack is developed and tailored to a specific aircraft.

WHAT IS THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND ACCU-SIM? Real pilots will tell you that no two aircraft are the same. Even taking the same aircraft up from the same airport to the same location on different days will result in a different experience. For example, you may notice that one day your engine is running a bit hotter than usual or it may have an odd sound or vibration. Regardless, these things should occur in a realistically created simulation just as they do in real life, but until now, they never do. This is what Accu-Sim does – it puts the gauge (and the real world) back in the game. Putting realism in a simulation does not mean that your flying experience will be more difficult. While Accu-Sim is created by pilots, it is built for everyone. This means that you will find that Accu-Sim is presented in an intuitive layout which will enhance your flying experience, and which is easy to use. However, if Accu-Sim is enabled and the needles are in the red, there will be consequences. It is no longer just an aircraft, it's a simulation.
